Army chief reviews preparedness along Arunachal border

New Delhi, May 21 (UNI): Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane has reviewed operational preparedness of the formations along the areas bordering with China in Arunachal Pradesh region and also the security scenario in the hinterland of northeastern states, an official in the force said here on Friday.

In his two-day visit to the region, General Narwane arrived in Nagaland’s Dimapur on Thursday.

“On arrival at the Corps Headquarters in Dimapur, the Army Chief was briefed by Lieutenant General Johnson Mathew, General Officer Commanding Spear Corps and the Divisional Commanders on the prevailing situation and operational preparedness along the Northern borders,” Indian Army said in a statement.

The Army Chief’s interaction with the field commanders complimented all ranks for maintaining excellent vigil and exhorted them to stay alert and keep watch on activities along the Line of Actual Control with China.

Earlier, he had also reviewed security situation along the Line of Control with Pakistan in Jammu region.

India and China were locked in a military standoff at multiple friction points in eastern Ladakh since early May last year but they have completed the withdrawal of troops and weapons from the North and South banks of Pangong Lake in February following a series of military and diplomatic talks.

The two sides are now engaged in talks to extend the disengagement process to the remaining friction points, though the disengagement process on other friction points is yet to be resolved.
